A new online high school for gifted kids

Greetings! I know it has been a long time since I've posted here, but there's some great news that I wanted to share with the Gifted Exchange audience. The Davidson Institute -- which is the sponsor of this blog -- has just announced the launch of a new full-time online high school option for the 2017-2018 academic year. The Davidson Academy in Reno has been serving the profoundly gifted population for the last 10 years, but has required students to live in Nevada (or families to move there). Now, the Davidson Academy's Online High School will serve students who live anywhere in the U.S.

For the 2017-2018 year, courses will be available for incoming freshmen and sophomores. Courses for juniors and seniors will be added in subsequent years. Applicants must be 12 to 15 years old as of Sept. 30, 2017, and will need to submit SAT or ACT scores and commit to being full-time students. The age requirement will be expanded upward as more advanced high school courses are added in future years.

For Nevada residents, the Davidson Academy is free to attend in person or online. For out-of-state students, there will be a $100 application and assessment fee, and if accepted, people will pay tuition, but there is financial assistance available. The application deadline is March 1, 2017. If space is available, late applications will be considered until April 15.

While there are various online school options available to students, the Davidson Academy has a unique perspective on the needs of profoundly gifted young people, and aims to create a community of such students (and families) who often don't get a chance to spend much time with their intellectual peers. If you've been trying to figure out a good school option for your gifted pre-teen/young teen, this could be worth checking out.

I believe that online schools will help special students to get the best knowledge online as comparing with other students.

Math is considered as examination of advance that generally focus on social event and rate of advance. Math is basically isolated into two particular classes – Integral Calculus and Differential Calculus. Online Classes are planned to take on time and in case you can't do it then it infers it is conceivable that you will get short-investment or relinquished in the course. Is it precise to state that you want that can someone take my online calculus class? By then your request is over, you can pay 'Online Class ace. We will take your tests and tests for your purpose from start to finish. We helped a large number understudies in productive course in completing their online Calculus class.

Do you wait until the last minute before undertaking tasks and assignments? Most people will procrastinate until they can wait no more and then rush to beat the deadline. When it comes to taxes, there are quite some pitfalls of taking this route.
